BOOK BLOGGER HOP #7

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books. This week's question comes from Ivan who blogs at Ivan Bookworm:



"IF YOU WERE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO SPEND ONE DAY IN A FICTIONAL WORLD (FROM A BOOK), WHICH BOOK WOULD IT BE FROM AND WHAT WOULD THAT PLACE BE?"

This is really difficult because so many books are rife with turmoil and wars, and I'm not sure I would want to be there! But, I would like to visit Victorian England, and the world in the Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series, ie Soulless. Victorian steampunk, with a supernatural twist - as long as I get to ride in carriages and wear beautiful dresses, sounds like fun to me!
Where would you go?

I have had Soulless on my TBR list for a long time, it sounds like a great book. I am going to have to read it soon!

That sounds like such fun, I really need to read Soulless. :) And you're right, being able to wear pretty dresses while riding around in carriages sounds like fun!

Have a good weekend and happy reading!

I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected – http://www.howardsherman.net

A carriage ride and a flouncy dress. Do we get to carry parasols? :)

I've heard of SOULLESS a few times, now I need to look it up!

Ooo a steampunk would be pretty damn epic, though hand down it would be a day in Ankh Morpork of the Discworld, if nothing else than to meet Dibbler :P

A victorian steampunk world sounds like quite an interesting choice to me. I like it! :)
